RE: Harriet FOUND
Next time our Oakwood genealogist is doing research at the library I 'll ask him to look through the newspaper files for an obit.

RE: Harriet FOUND
I stopped by Oakwood today and blew a little chalk on Harriet's headstone. (See photo on memorial page.) The dates are still pretty badly damaged but now we know February 1915, you can almost see it. Unfortunately, the burial permit book with her actual date of death is no longer available so you may never know the actual day unless you come up with a newspaper clipping. The Niagara Falls Gazette would be the place to look for the obit.

RE: Harriet FOUND
Her long lifespan fooled me, too. After I got through the burial records for 80 years or so, I figured I had missed her so I would go back and start over. Today I got the bright idea to search for 110 years and there she was. Sorry about that. I should have found her before now.

Harriet FOUND
She lived to be 91 years old and is buried in the same plot (#132) as her husband. Her burial date was 2/14/1915 and I will look for her burial permit to find her exact date of death.

Whew! This is almost as good as finding my baby Aunt who's grave had been lost for 91 years!

RE: Harriet (Kline) Brown
You know it's possible Harriet IS there but the stone is so eroded that it isn't legible. However, we had a similar incident where we were looking and looking and looking for someone and one day, during a rainstorm, the stone revealed just enough of the worn lettering for us to finally read that who we were looking for was there all along! So when I go by the stone I'll give it a look and maybe, someday, the light will be right or it will be wet or maybe, just maybe, the fates will align *just* right to reveal what other mysteries are written there.

The fact that I haven't found her in the burial log doesn't mean much, either, since she may have remarried and be there under a different name. And it wasn't unusual to find that the sexton forgot to enter a burial in the master log. It happened all the time. If you ever come up with a death date -- or even a suspected death date -- we can search burial permits but that's a massive job and it's a lot easier to have a starting point for a search.

Cross your fingers. It may yet be revealed...

Could the L. Gorsline that you are looking for be Louis Gorsline 1859-1962...I found the following link

Saint-françois-du-lac cemetery
Thank you for your kind message. I see that Saint-françois-du-lac cemetery is not in my area. If I am sometime around, I'll be happy to help you find your 3d great grandfather! :)

Captain Richard Paul Barneby
Dear Stephen,
I noticed that you had left a message on the memorial page for Captain Richard Paul Barneby (buried in Secqueville-en-Bessin War Cemetery in Normandy) You might be interested to know that I have just added two photographs of his Headstone to that page.
Kind regards
Carol (Woose)

You are most welcome. Yes, you may use the pictures I took of Esther Hale's headstone on your ancestry tree. Thank you for asking.
